Abstract: UAVs are used in military and civilian fields. Security of UAV Data Link is still unsatisfactory especially if a strong adversary model is considered. This paper describes a new design of AENOTP, tested for security in UAVs Data Link. AENOTP algorithm combines NOTP with AE technique to ensure encryption and authentication along with data integrity. AE is a technique that ensures the security of the transported data. The design and analysis of AENOTP gives a fast and enhanced stream cipher AE architecture based on the unpredictability concept. Implementation of AENOTP measures encryption and decryption of any sent and received data. AENOTP shows high speed of generating the key stream bits of the OTP stream cipher and high speed of the proposed algorithm of 75 Mbits/sec. It achieves high level of security for any transmitted data. It can easily resist different attacks such as linear and differential attacks.
